    Summary

    The year is 1814. Isolated from the rest of the world, and under the strict military rule of the Tokugawa Shogunate, Japan successfully enters a period of social and economic stability, ending the political upheavals from centuries past. Even so, beneath the veneer of peace lies corruption within the ranks of government, excess and decadence, and the threads of the established social order slowly beginning to unravel.

    Hyakuya Yuuichirou is a young samurai from the daimyo house of Hiiragi, a powerful vassal to the current shogun. Vowing his allegiance to the master who had taken him in as a child, Yuuichirou soon finds his loyalties torn when the childhood friend he's been searching for abruptly turns up...as a member of a rebel group looking to dismantle the current regime.

    Summary

    "'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

    A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

    All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

    Formerly posted as "Life Prison." Includes an illustration by Everybery in the end notes. This novel was a runner-up in the Gay Fantasy category of the Rainbow Awards 2014.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    "He tried to keep his voice calm, though his pulse was racing."

    Time is running out.

    Vito de Vere has ten days to prepare for his performance in the Eternal Dungeon's first play. He may have fewer days than that to fight for his career and to save his prisoner's life.

    As the Eternal Dungeon prepares for the greatest change it has ever undergone, Vito must prove his worth by breaking and transforming a criminal. Nobody else is likely to manage it. And nobody but himself cares so passionately whether his prisoner survives.

    As an actor, Vito portrays the qualities of courage, love, truth, and trust. Now he must find the strength to take those qualities into the breaking cell.

    Summary

    “Not yet. First, I need you to come with me.”

    “To come?” Tooru squints. The aftershock is still running through his system, his hands shaken, his legs barely keeping him on place. “To come where?”

    “To your deepest fantasies.”

    Tooru has no time to think, when Iwaizumi throws them both inside the rabbit hole.

    A further Sense and Sensibility Destiel sequel (for the love of Jane, someone stop me!). It is 1830. The cities of Liverpool and Manchester are connected by a locomotive-hauled passenger railway opens between Liverpool and Manchester, London watches anxiously as the government wrestles with some weird concept called 'democracy', and in rural Devonshire, Castiel and Dean now have ten children, a new (yet old) house, and most of their friends and family. But even some quiet backwater like the Culm Valley will not be unaffected by the changes coming to England - and there are problems closer to home as well.

    Summary

    Despite her relatively young age, captain Fareeha Amari was an experienced captain with a loyal crew and a family reputation stretching decades. She had seen them safely through any degree of seafaring disasters: storms of all sizes, attacks from hostile pirates, navigation issues, and even a stranding or two. She had thought she had seen all the sea had to throw at her. That was, until, her crew pulled a mermaid onto her deck during what was supposed to be an already-dangerous trip. Fareeha would soon come to learn that the sea still had much to teach her.

    Summary

    Leonard, miserably divorced, finally gives in to his hospital colleagues' requests to join them at a luxurious pleasure house. He's put off by the experience until the Madam offers to get him a boy, and the one that arrives at his room is nothing like he'd imagined.

    Jim had always followed three rules when it came to selling his body: Don’t give the client your real name, don’t deny the client anything, and definitely—obviously—don’t fall for the client. It’s never been difficult to stick to those rules until Jim finds himself working in a house full of girls, servicing a man he calls Bones.

    Summary

    Harry and Louis had fallen into bed together again that night, mouths greedy and hands needy. And now every time Louis stops at Fort Kearney, even if it’s weeks in between, he and Harry spend the night together. The nights are always filled with heat and passion, and it gives Louis something to think on fondly as he rides across the western territories carrying sacks of mail.

    They’ve never talked about it, and they’ve never kissed. Louis doesn’t know if he wants either of those things to change, but he knows that his presence in Harry’s life is sporadic at best. Probably best to leave things be.

    Or, Louis is a Pony Express rider and Harry runs a station along the trail.
